[Dirvish] Exclude all dev directories

Hi,

I want to exclude all directories and subdirectories that are called /dev/

My backup contains a lot of development work on other hardware, and
I'm finding the backup is reporting failed due to trying to back up
non-regular files, e.g.

IO error encountered -- skipping file deletion
skipping non-regular file "home/wookey/acapela-bits/i386-lenny/dev/full"

If I put
exclude:
*/dev/
in my master conf, will this have the desired effect?

Thanks,

Jenny
